a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election is all about. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008 when we talked about change, i told i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word, by folks who would say anything to win office and do anything to stay there. the protectors of the status quo are a powerful force

or two big ballot measures that were really well campaigned on and educated and then you made your decision, that would be one thing. what we've seen is too much democracy, too much choice, which is a practical matter, you have down ballot voting where a lot of people don't bother to choose. the people who do choose aren't as well informed. i'll question back to the saturday night live ad about the undecided voters. when is the election some who? s who is the president? and be specific. and if you have trouble remembering the two people running for president, what do you think happening in a confusing 1% worded ballot like that. >> but sometimes there is a decent amount of information. the key one that i'm focusing on is the maryland marriage equality one. and there is a lot of information and a lot of bhalgts grounding going on with that. but i'm still distressed because it's not clear to me that someone's fundamental civil rights ought to be on a ballot. i mean, if slavery had been voted on, pretty sure it would have taken another, i don't know, tech and i had, two decades, maybe
